Fantastic machine. Saw that it also sews through different fabric thicknesses, as thick as leather. A sturdy machine is a good investment.
This can be investigated, surely there might be an option for this to pay in instalments (is that what you mean by lease?). Can also investigate more affordable alternatives. There are a lot of reviews and comparisons on different machines.
Sure an advanced embroidery setting is good, but may be we prioritise less embroidery functions and more durability of the machine, heavy duty (can it sew through fabrics), ease of use, surface…in which case there are plenty of options out there in the market.
But if we can manage the Husqvarna machine…looks amazing !
Long term thinking to fund more machines, etc. it would be interesting to host events and workshops around Tau that go towards funding. I could for example teach basic sewing and the proceeds can go to getting these machines. Excited!
